Summer Skin

Images + Post By: | May 30, 20128 Comments

I know what’s in for summer: bright floral prints on pants and tropical plants on leggings. Sweet dresses in pale colors; touches of lace. I want none of that. This summer I am interested in baring skin while wearing skin. I can’t get the luxeness, the toughness, the timelessness of black leather out of my head. Faux, real, for real. I’m not envisioning dusty leather jacket or or scuffed up motorcycle boots—nah, something sleeker and more surprising than that. I’m seeking leather in unusual shapes, unexpected forms, and as an accent that elevates a look from basic to beyond.

Let’s start at the top and work our way down.

This leather cap from Stetson is a must have for summer, to be worn with as many other textures (mesh, nylon, denim, chains) or as little other clothing (bikini, bra top) as possible.

This leather necklace from Zara can be worn with everything, or nothing. It would work ell over a white beater and cut offs during the day. It would kill over something sheer at night. It epitomizes the potential of leather to be feminine and playful without being passive.

I thought the greatest love of all was leather tee shirts, until I saw this leather tank top available at Nasty Gal. My love for it is unconditional.  Extra points for the long thin necklace. I love how this tank has strong form without being form fitting. Loose leather is THE look. Since I don’t have this body type, I would layer it over another tank/dress or wear something with a super high waist.

I find the elastic waistband to be one of the most controversial design elements in all of fashion. These leather-look shorts from Stylestalker tip the drawstring scales toward “absolutely.” They’re like fake leather soccer shorts–the summer choice of champions.


At the risk of being super trendy: leggings.  I think they’re a fixture and rather than fighting it, why don’t we just style them better? Like not with corny stilettos. If you got thick thighs,  you can serve major body wearing a contrasting fake leather strip. If you live by the law “leggings are not pants,” wear an away from the body top that covers your cunt.

These are the crown jewel of summer skin: 90% water snake leather drop crotch shorts from Rick Owens. They are 1000% future sexy. They are 3000% above my pay grade. I would like to start a Kickstarter to own them.

Happy hunting for summer skins!
